Dear Helio and other Ziners,
Not to be too argumentative - as a rule I do make my own
arrangements - I went to Giverny by myself on the same Paris trip.
However, by the time you add up the price of train, taxis and entry
fee to Vaux-le-Vicomte for a single person, the tour is a good deal
plus I had the benefit of an expert commentary from the tour leader.
I am happy to take public transportation (trains, buses) as I do not
drive, but to be honest, I am reluctant to take taxis by myself. I
very rarely do it here in NYC either.
Have a good weekend all,
Mara in NYC
